Oof. I remember the Hey Jude being out of tune and off key. The rest of the show destroys.

On yet a third listen, I can see, to my embarrassment, that it might have benefitted from a few more rehearsals. I still enjoyed it :) It's a kick to hear Jerry Garcia doing the nah-nah-nah thing.
I had never listened to that show before, and it is just spectacular overall.

Why is Pigpen shouting about walking on water? I seem to be hearing Christ references everywhere today.

Then and now there are references, because of the promised eternity, forever and always, if you don't know him, seek someone who does and you will be happier than you can ever have been.:)

I am unlikely to be converted to Christ, fellas, even by the good ol' Grateful Dead. But thanks.

I've been looking for an excuse to put this up. It is just so damned WRONG in so many ways that it totally cracks me up. I mean what the hell were they thinking...

Seems like a pretty good transliteration of coffee shooting down the nostrils and impacting with the keyboard.


Sorry

It is funny .
Am I supposed to laugh ?
Will he know ?
Does this effect my chances of Paradise ?
What happened to the ' designer ' of this artwork ?
Did they die a horrible electric death ?

Thank God they don't have a Muhammad one .

F***ing Brilliant!!!! Raised Catholic with one foot in the monastery door at one point, I find this to be an amazing piece of Dadaist art.

Actually "Hey Jude" was written by Paul McCartney for The Beatles. The inspiration was John Lennon's son Julian and started as Hey Jules, and became "Hey Jude". Paul was trying to write a song of comfort for a young boy of parents were divorcing.


The Pigpen version was inspired by Wilson Pickett's soul flavored cover of Hey Jude, a record that featured Duane "Skydog" Allman backing up "The Wicked" Pickett on lead guitar... so in reality The Grateful Dead's "Hey Jude" was a cover of Wilson Pickett covering The Beatles.
In late 1968 throughout 1969 The Beatles version was all over the radio constantly and Wilson Pickett's version made it high on the "Soul" radio station charts.

Hey Jude, Me & Bobby McGee and Werewolves Of London are about the only songs I can recall the Grateful Dead covering that were actual "current hits" on the radio at the same time the band covered them (in 1969, 1971 and 1978, respectively). They did play quite a few "current" cover songs around 1966 though... they were a "dance band" after all and played many current "hits" in '66, such as "Midnight Hour", "Dancing In The Street" and "Walking The Dog" though....

Good call . WP's version is most likely what he was going for . All said, it is pretty bad, though , had they rehearsed a version , and Pigpen had time to figure out how he could do it , it might have been fine . Within his limits, he was great,and I can almost hear him singing Hey Jude, but he is caught off-guard here .
One thing... If you are trying to covert a friend to the Dead, don't play this ...

Thanks for all the info! I did know it was written by Paul McCartney, of course ... I didn't mean "written for Pigpen" literally.

I had to listen to it first thing this morning to see if it was as good as I thought it was late last night. It was, it's really cool.

Actually - after listening all the way through again - it's magnificent.

It reminds me how impromptu they were,,,,,Stir it up and the tuning ditties come to mind, although sloppy, Hey Jude was a wonderful encore to a the solid sizzler of the 03-01-69 show.

Do you think so? Yikes. I really liked it.
Had never listened to that show before. I almost didn't want to listen to the Hey Jude encore, I thought that it was bound to be a disappointment. Instead I loved it. I think Phil should sing Hey Jude too.
